Updated at 11:44 a.m. Wednesday with victim identification.

A 67-year-old man was shot and killed in his car in east Oak Cliff Tuesday afternoon. 

Officers responded to the shooting call around 3 p.m. in the 1500 block of Harbor Road near South Lancaster Road. Officers found a man injured with several gunshot wounds, police said. 

The man, identified as 67-year-old Oluwafemi Joseph Ogundana, was taken to Methodist Central Hospital where he died, police said.

Authorities say no one is in custody yet and they are still investigating the motive. Police said the case is related to a nearby SWAT incident. 

Officers thought that the shooting suspect might be at another home and they headed to that location Tuesday night, police said. 

As of 9:36 p.m. Tuesday the SWAT call was over and officers did not find anybody in the house. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Scott Sayers at 214-671-3647 or at scott.sayers@dallascityhall.com. Please refer to case no. 169092-2019.

Officers worked another SWAT call Tuesday night, that was not related to the Harbor Road shooting. 

The incident began around 4:34 p.m. in the 9600 block of Paramount Avenue in Pleasant Grove after a suspect jumped out of a stolen vehicle, police said.

The man then barricaded himself into a home, and the SWAT team was at the home late into Tuesday night as the incident was handled as a barricaded person call.
